Drug protocols and new chemotherapeutic agents become available literally every day. That is why it is important to have physicians who are up to date with the latest advances for cancer treatment. There are now treatments for some cancers where few were available before, offering greater hope, fewer risks, and better outcomes.
In the past, doctors treated all cancers the same. Now they know that cancers behave differently and it is best to define the specific type of cancer and develop and individualized treatment plan. In addition, doctors are combining drugs with other therapies, or staging treatments in particular ways in order to obtain the best result.
